Reviews

The Fifth of 1942/43 originally bore a dedication to ‘our great ally’ the USSR (though this had disappeared by the time the score was printed in 1961) , while the Sixth of 1944 was inspired by Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address, with movements entitled ‘Awakening’, ‘Conflict’, ‘Dedication’ and ‘Affirmation’...both are serious, impressive pieces which certainly deserve a hearing...these are strong accounts, and admirers of the Third who want to explore Harris further will not be disappointed. Performance: [four stars] Recording: [four stars]
